Louis Boillot in concert with his wife Ghislaine Barthod and their son Clément Boillot-Barthod manage a fabulous array of old-vine vineyards in both the Cotes de Nuits and Cotes de Beaune. Whilst this Burgundian ‘red-royalty’ family hold no Grand Cru vineyards they turn out some of the most beautiful red Burgundy along the Cote d’Or.

Other Reviews....
A much more deeply pitched nose grudgingly offers up notes of poached plum, dark currant, earth and a lovely range of discreet spice elements. There is better volume and richness to the sappy and slightly more complex flavors that possess slightly better finishing balance though the tannins are still inelegant and somewhat coarse. Drink 2028+.

Boillot's ancient vines have produced three barrels of the glorious 2018 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Cherbaudes, a striking wine that exhibits aromas of cherries, cassis, rich soil tones, citrus rind and violets. Medium to full-bodied, deep and multidimensional, it's voluminous and concentrated, concluding with a long and lively finish. As I wrote last year, this cuvée hails from a parcel planted a century ago, and it contains some 5% small-berried selections of Gamay.

William Kelley - Wine Advocate (Feb 2020)

The 2018 Gevrey-Chambertin Les Cherbaudes 1er Cru offers a mixture of red and black fruit on the nose, intermixed with truffle oil and dried blood aromas; quite complex and engaging. The palate is medium-bodied with a supple opening, then fleshy and lightly spiced. It does not quite kick on as I was expecting and seems rather conservative toward the finish, although maybe it has something up its sleeve for later. Drink 2023-2037.
